  1. Jenny Mendes Workshop Awakening the Possibilities: Terra Cotta Jungle WS05 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, June 11 & 12 2016 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member This hands-on, two day workshop is for anyone who wants to awaken the possibilities in their ceramic work through the imaginative use of color decoration. Jenny will demonstrate various vibrant ways to approach the surface as a painter, by means of a palette of terra sigillatas, underglaze, washes and oxides. Simple hand-built forms and tiles will serve as your canvas. She will share her “low tech method†of making terra sigillata. The emphasis will be on helping participants relax so they can play with color, texture and imagery on the surface of their work. A willingness to have fun and embrace the deliberate awkwardness of finding oneself in unknown territory is the only prerequisite! All levels welcome. Jenny Mendes earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 1982, and has been a full time studio artist since 1994. Jenny is an internationally recognized ceramic artist working primarily with clay to create hand-built and decorated ceramics. She exhibits her ceramic artwork nationally at galleries and juried shows. Since completing a three-year residency at the Penland School of Crafts in 2007, she has completed additional short-term residencies in France, Slovenia, Macedonia, and the US. She currently resides in Ohio, teaches an occasional workshop, and gardens for pleasure. Artist Statement Using clay as my primary material, I have found an entry way into my subconscious. I work intuitively with a palate comprised of many things. First I create a structure which I overlay with painted patterns of emotional experience, sensory based memories, cellular formations, and other discoveries. Working within a human/animal narrative, I engage in a dialogue that witnesses and reflects an invitation into my world.

    Mountain mugs

    From the album: Work in Progress

    I'm a very new beginner to wheel throwing. These two mugs were an attempt to throw the same shape twice with 1 lb. of clay. I was pretty happy with how they turned out! One has a sunrise scene slip trailed on and the other has a full day scene. They will be treated with iron oxide and glazed in different colors to reflect the time of day.

    Mountain range sponge holder

    From the album: Work in Progress

    My second wheel thrown sponge holder. Slip trail decoration with a mountain scene and crescent moon. The mountains will be rubbed with iron oxide and the rest will be glazed a lovely layered blue that breaks over the slip trailing.

  4. Kelly & Kyle Phelps: The Narrative Figure Workshop WS03 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, June 27 & 28, 2015 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member Kelly and Kyle Phelps will demonstrate a variety of techniques they use to create figurative relief work with an emphasis on storytelling. The twins will share their process from start to finish on how their work is created and discuss how the use of the figure can be the perfect vehicle to talk about topics like but not limited to social/political, environmental issues, race, religion, class, sexuality, gender, poverty, war, and other issues of our time. Sequential topics that range from initial Idea generation – music, personal interviews, site visits, material meaning, and other related topics that inspires and informs their work will be explained. Formal aspects of armature/relief board construction, composition, scale/proportion, figure sculpting, surface treatment, and final presentation will be revealed. In this hands on workshop, the twins will create high relief figurative - narratives that will be influenced by their blue-collar working class background. Bio Identical twin brothers Kelly and Kyle Phelps are Associate Professors at private Catholic universities in Ohio. Kelly Phelps is an Associate Professor/Chair at Xavier University, Cincinnati, where he over sees the sculpture department. Kyle is an Associate Professor at University Dayton, OH, where he is the head of the ceramics department. Much of the twins’ work is about the blue collar working-class, race relations and the everyday struggles of the common man and woman. Both Kelly and Kyle continue to work collaboratively to create their artwork at their studio in Centerville, Ohio. The Phelps twins have conducted workshops at the highly respected Penland School of Craft Arts as well as the Baltimore Clayworks. The twins share numerous grants, regional and national exhibitions, and commissions. More notable private collectors of the twins work are in the hands of film director Michael Moore, and actor Morgan Freeman as well as a major review in the world acclaimed Sculpture Magazine and American Craft Magazine. Before entering the world of academia, becoming professors, tenure, and most recently sabbatical, the twins experienced firsthand what the struggles of the working class were really about! The twins grew up in a blue-collar/factory environment in Indiana where they were inspired by family members and friends who worked in various manufacturing plants, steel mills, and foundries. These everyday people became working class heroes that has inspired over a decade of working class art. For a number of years the twins have produced work that incorporates both the hand-crafted (ceramic and resin cast forms) juxtaposed with found objects/site specific objects. Kyle and Kelly have combined gears, corrugated metal and scrap-machined parts along with modeled ceramic/resin cast figures to create a visual narrative composition about the blue-collar experience. It is important for the twins to continue to combine hand-crafted ceramic forms together with these found objects to give their work an authentic sense of place and time. The found objects are in sense historical artifacts. Much of Kyle and Kelly’s work not only allows the viewer to visualize their created compositions, but also allows the viewer to evoke their other senses as well. Some of the found objects that they have incorporated into the work are soot-covered or soaked in cutting machine oils that emit a distinctive odor commonly found in automotive factories.

  6. WS05 – Kate Borcherding: Developing Narrative Figurative Sculpture Kate Borcherding Developing Narrative Figurative Sculpture WS05 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, November 15 & 16, 2014 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member Public artist lecture Friday, 7-8pm, November 14 – RSVP matt.hyleck@baltimoreclayworks.org This 2-day, fast-paced workshop explores ideas in developing narrative figurative ceramics and multiple techniques in building and finishing. Through a series of demonstrations, hand-outs (both in class and as take away resources) and hands-on thumbnail exercises, students will become familiar with Kate’s personal approach to constructing narrative scultpure. Students will explore the process of harnessing ideas, advancing the content to form a narrative through a variety of modeling methods and surface approaches to create narrative assemblages. Demonstrations will address a variety of resource material gathering, mark-making methods, construction approaches and surface finishing techniques. Be prepared to engage mind and body for a breakthrough experience in narrative figurative ceramics. Kate Borcherding (born October 26, 1960) is an American artist working in mixed media. Her artistic style is both neoclassical and postmodern. Her art mainly focuses on the human figure, and is often psychological in nature with narratives expressed across multiple layers. Her ceramic work focuses on the creation of assemblages incorporating either the human form or a personification of an object. She makes use of visual symbols which she extracts and extends from the direct observation of an environment including important cultural, architectural or technological representations. Projecting the object into the observers’ psychological space compels observers to “dive in†with their own humanity as an emotive participant in order to unfold the inner narrative of the art. Through this re-living of an inner world of an important period and place a universal moment from the past becomes alive. Borcherding’s site specific environmental sculpture pushes the space relationship between object and observer even further so that the observer walks into and on the art. Her long studio career is complemented with a commitment to art education which she fulfills thru printmaking, ceramic and life drawing workshops. She is currently developing a drawing and anatomy curriculum for online education under the moniker “Art Teamâ€. She is also an art professor at Sam Houston State University where she has been employed since 1993. During the academic year she lives on a working horse and cattle ranch in Texas. The cool of summer is enjoyed in and around Madison, Wisconsin with her mother, artist Joan Jelinek, and her four brothers. “Knowledge of places is therefore closely linked to knowledge of the self, to grasping ones’s position in the larger scheme of things, including one’s own community". (Basso, 1996). WS05 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, November 15 & 16, 2014 Fee: $200 members; $225 non-members Contact Matthew Hyleck at matt.hyleck@baltimoreclayworks.org for more information.
